He wants you to believe it’s not your hourly wage that is the problem — it’s how many hours you are working is. People working 40 hours a week are lazy to him.


WritingNewIdeas

I got the solution, just work 40 hrs a week for 1 million/hr. Problem solved.


burnerwig

He looks like an amalgamation of every horrible boss that’s been portrayed in any media.

Legit, imagine having him as your boss....


But_like_whytho

Hard. Pass. I’d rather live in a van down by the river first.


poopy_poo_poopsicle

If there is weed ill join you. And dogs


HungryAccount1704

That is gross. Also, lots of people work that many hours, never go on vacation, work every holiday, and are still poor. So fuck you?


Cmyers1980

Most of the world population lives on $5 or less a day. I guess they’re all lazy and incompetent. “If wealth was the inevitable result of hard work and enterprise every woman in Africa would be a millionaire.” - George Monbiot


paraouji

If hard work pays, show me rich donkey


talaxia

if you move the poverty level up to an actual sustainable level and not an arbitrary number that makes the world bank / capitalists feel good, over half the world lives in abject crushing poverty. The actual liveable level is $7.50 a day. Right now it's set at a little over one dollar, recently down from $1.50, so dipshits can claim capitalism lifted billions out of poverty when it did no such thing. anyway I hate it here


Cmyers1980

> dipshits can claim capitalism lifted billions out of poverty when it did no such thing. As Parenti, Hickel, Chomsky etc have detailed Capitalism and hundreds of years of imperialism is why the Global South is impoverished to begin with.


talaxia

yup absolutely


fears_escalators

Just gotta pull yourself up by the bootstraps /s


Class_in_a_Rat

You don't need the /s, as you were actually using it correctly. Try to pull yourself up by your laces, literally, and what happens? You don't go anywhere. It's been misused by corrupt ass holes and the simple minded public.


ImAOneTrackLover

They used the /s because, like you said, it's impossible to pull yourself up by your bootstraps, and therefore they were being sarcastic.


Rawveenmcqueen

r/fuckthes


infamouszgbgd

That's when they move the goalposts: "Oh well hard work alone is not enough, you also need to work smart", and then when that doesn't work either they're all like "Well you also need a bit of luck, risk tolerance and uh..." \*whispers\* "*rich parents*"


JustSkylab

Government restrictions, dictatorships: allow us to introduce ourselves Check the Index of Economic Freedom, the African nations are the last ones on economic freedom, at the same level of Venezuela, Syria and other countries. A lot of companies would be glad to extract the oil of Congo as they did in Venezuela 1990 and the country got extremely wealthy and with a good quality of life, how it ended? Government expropriations, starting useless civil wars, instability, no rule of law, expanding the freedom of government and reducing the freedom of the people. Venezuela has the largest proven oil reserves in the planet and has the most expensive gallon of oil. Logically if you have more products than people demanding you have a surplus, there is deflation, price goes down, people buy more of it or save to purchase other things. Then why going backwards, expropriating and having the most expensive oil in the most rich-in-oil country?


Moosetappropriate

Exactly. Guaranteed that asshole doesn't make minimum wage. For minimum, there's no fuckin' way I'll put in those hours. When I was making $100K plus I would gladly put in the effort of 50-60 hours a week but absolutely I wouldn't do the rest. There's a reason why most of these idiots are on their fourth or fifth wife.


Jader14

I wouldn’t do 60 hours even for $100k. 1) id have no time or energy left to spend it, and 2) it’s scientifically proven that more than 40 hours a week reduces your life expectancy significantly. I may be suicidal, but I sure the shit don’t want to go out working myself to death


PlanetNiles

Yeah I was going to say that I'm on call 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year and I haven't had a holiday in 15 years. Still poor. Edit: I'm a full time carer for a family member


HungryAccount1704

I'm real sorry to hear that. You deserve more than that.


fuckthisplanetup

The first proper paid job I worked as a part-time IT tech support student (learning on the job), I was being paid 20 hours worth a week, but I was there 8 to 4 or 5 every day. I did that because I didn't mind it at the time and wanted to impress for getting, hopefully, a better review and recommendation/reference for the future. In the end my manager at the time wasn't exactly that nice and it didn't work out with them. Finished my work contract, which didn't get renewed, on a bad note. I learned from this and won't let my work/effort be exploited like that ever again, only to be treated like shit afterwards. That being said, Fuck this asshole piece of shit in his suit.


BigDaddyStalin69

LunarxSeven

[deleted]

Yeah I did that for my mum, and wouldn’t take it back I love her. The rate of pay from our gov here is 60 pounds a week lol. Laughable reallt


nitonitonii

What he call "work" is managing his investing and deciding where will go, dealing with public relations, but yeah, mostly playing with his money. He wasn't a minimun wage working making money for somebody else, even they must give you vacation, he didn't "took vacation" because he was still thinking about his money, investing and checking his portfolio everyday.


Roos534

When 1% increase on his invest ment is more than people make in a year rip


garythegyarados

His net worth is $500m If most of that is tied up in investments, a 1% increase would be more than most Americans earn in a lifetime :(


Nickadeamus36

No they don’t have to give you a vacation. Not in America. I was a chef for 15 years, never once had a vacation, never once had a paid day off.


Vlyn

Work is not always work. When a rich person in management says they work a ton.. that means traveling.. nice business dinners.. talking on the golf course.. holding meetings for hours (But that can still be fun on a yacht).. It's all things where time passes quite quickly and comfortably. Except for really dry meetings I guess.


LGCJairen

This is what they dont tell you. That life is fine to work all the time and not take vacations....its a fucking different story sitting in an office creating software or something


Uniqueusername360

Yes I spend 8 months a year working 100 to 110 hour work weeks. And it improves the quality of my spouses life. The other 4 months are roughly 80 hour weeks. I want to die.


HungryAccount1704

That is a crazy amount of time to spend at work. If you don't mind, what do you do?


Uniqueusername360

I work for a “bakery” I’m the flagship employee. We ship and do large scale numbers. I am basically a title-less manager. I manage the crew, run any emergency errands and clean up all the daily messes, deal with building managers/assort all cupcakes/and so much more. (after starting to write all this I think it best be summed up as equal parts box factoryworker/bakery manager/shipping warehouse manager) I also don’t share this position with anybody, so all of these responsibilities fall squarely at my feet. When I hang my hat up for the day, I will always return to the exact same work load that I left.


HungryAccount1704

Wow, that is crazy. I'm sorry you have to put up with that. I hope something else comes along for you soon. I wouldn't be able to do that for long.


AzureBuzzSaw

Damn, what happened to your tits?


Greevar

It's sounds like you're pretty critical to the business. You should march in and demand a big pay raise. Give them an ultimatum. Either they pay you a lot more or you walk off the job. For all the work they lay at your feet, I think they can't afford to not have you. If not, then at least you'll be free of that misery.


Sweezy_McSqueezy

Don't ever give an ultimatem unless you already are prepared for both answers. Have a 2nd job offer lined up. Putting your finances in jeopardy at the flip of a coin is dangerous, especially since you have a spouse. Instead, try to have an open dialogue with your manager about your work-life balance and compensation. Don't be a doormat, but treat them like a normal human being on even footing with you.


Skynat38

Dude mad respect, a few years ago I work 110+ for 6 months and on labor day week I hit 126, told my boss that I was done and went down to one job after the week ended

RebornHellblade

Why is struggle porn so endemic? Why don’t we normalise living wages and affordable housing instead of self-flagellating work? The only time I’d work for hours and hours on something would be for a personal project.


Vyzantinist

>Why is struggle porn so endemic? Why don’t we normalise living wages and affordable housing instead of self-flagellating work? Protestant Work Ethic and the Just World delusion. It's funny how the Romans employed "bread and circuses" to keep the proles pacified, but modern capitalists can do the same for free by encouraging self-hatred and the idea that suffering is virtuous.


Cmyers1980

Struggle porn is just Capitalism trying to validate itself.


AffectionateTrash227

Imagine being that wealthy and STILL be that angry and bitter.

Money sure did not buy him any happiness lol. In this case the cheezy saying is true


[deleted]

[удалено]


Jader14

> “you have all this wealth, and it doesn’t magically make you any happier, why not put some back into society?” I really don't get it, because you eventually reach a point (which I believe to be around 10 million) where the number becomes too large to be cognitively meaningful to our monkey brains, and any reduction of that number will have a negligible impact on their quality of life. It's like they're riding a decades-long dopamine high on watching numbers get bigger----oh my god rich people are MMO min-maxers.


WhompWump

When I started working and had a set monthly amount of money I would receive and budget out, and then I started projecting that monthly budget out to like even the low 6-figures and saw how that would take care of everything in my life several times over it just makes it absolutely insane to think of these people with like, 7 8 9+ figure annual salaries.


NialMontana

The rich are just playing cookie clicker in real life. Make something, pay no one, profit.

Money can't buy you happiness, that's true, but money can buy you drugs, and that's cool.

Like drugs. Don't gotta worry about withdrawal if you can always afford it. (Also that post was a quote from the song "What I can't describe" by The Transplants


WarmMoistLeather

Yeah, sounds like he needs to improve his work-life balance. Maybe not but as much Starbucks and avacado toast then maybe he can cut back on those hours and take a vacation. Or maybe just some time in Amazon's crying box.


burnerwig

He’s living a miserable existence just so he can hoard billions to himself and contributing nothing to society.


AaronDoud

He's likely not that wealthy. He just pretends to be. It's part of his marketing.


blackcatcactus

I have literally done all of this for 8 years as a bartender. Still not rich, all I have to show for it is chronic back pain and a shit load of liquor promo tshirts.


deweydean

This is suppose to be a put down on poor people, but it just proves this guy, and probably other rich people like him, are just greedy, soulless, angry douchebags.


RobotWelder

“probably”??? It’s 99.9999% of rich people


deweydean

I agree, I should've used "most likely" or something other than "probably" It also seems like this dude, Dan Pena, is a specific subsection of work-a-holic businessman.


Exocypher

Indeed. You may get somewhat wealthy on your own but you can't get rich by being nice.


Roller95

What a miserable life that is


IPyromaniac

Are you willing to be born with rich parents!?!?!


CTBthanatos

Average Right wing mentally ill fetishizing of scientifically proven unsustainable hazardous work hours and delusional obsessions against having free time off of work.


MadHatt3r012

I thought Dan Pena was a businessman, not a politician


Remote-Boysenberry

The party of family values. Then the self described conservatives go "where have family dinners and family time gone? Why don't parents spend time wity their children more?"


xtian7

Boomers sacrificed their souls to corporations, and it shows


admiral_taco

Read a generation of sociopaths. it makes excellent arguments that the Boomer's childhoods made a lot of them have sociopathic tendencies. Hence the Neo-liberalism and the conservative shift in American politics.

Absolutely not. I value myself lol.


BagFullOfKittenBones

The YouTube channel Ordinary Things did a good video on Dan Pena and other self-proclaimed millionaires: https://youtu.be/_F2Q5ysdweo


Meandmystudy

So he just yells at people and gets them to believe in his marketing scheme while calling them "dumb retard's" because "tough love" works? Sounds like my mom, only I didn't live with her for that long, now I'm away from her, but her strategy is now to provide empty platitudes of "things will get better". It's almost like there's a clear obfuscation to the problem, but I don't think the older generation will see it, they're still drinking the coolaide and are probably the ones watching that guys Ted Talk about how to "become rich". Some of my favorite lines were "you don't hate me, you hate yourself", "Dumb retards!", "If someone isn't sitting in that seat, someone bought that seat, they're just not hear yet". Or Lok's key to success, which was to "think like a millionaire". The same bullshit motivational speeches, reminds me of r/getmotivated, which is still around, though I'm not sure how popular it is. If everything could be boiled down to a mindset, I'm sure we'd all be millionaires, which is the obvious grift here. People obviously know they shouldn't take advice from people like Tom Cruise, so I'm not sure how anyone could take advice for these assholes for a $2,500 subscription. Makes sense that they could be all scientologists. The whole larger than life persona and "believing is achieving" bullshit really works on people. Typically it works on the weak minded, but people will still buy into it. The whole motivational persona falls short of so many of life's problems, whether it's an empty platitude or a tough love approach, that generation is screwed.


derpman86

As much as I loathe the rich I do respect old money in a way because they don't have that kind of show off arrogance to them like many of these bastards in that video do. Also OT is an awesome channel btw.

Hi thanks for your articles. Its very interesting. I remember when i was became Dan Lok fans, i literally can't sleep without watching his video before. His speech always motivated me, untill someone told me about his mansion rent scandall in Canada. I still can't believe how stupid i'am.


emath1

Dan Lok had a rent scandal in Canada?

SnooLemons3697

Eh, I’ll take my life advice from other non-megalomaniacal types unlike Dan Penis here. Only fools equate wealth to be success, I find my time is spent better enjoying the company I keep and learning. Any dipshit with basic mathematics skills and no soul can get rich, they act like it’s this impressive feat. Nope.


groupiefingers

He’s such an angry fucking turd. The embodiment of scrooge


nemployedav

It's the old Japanese salary man definition of "work". Which includes all travel time, random emails and phone calls whenever, business lunches, meetings, and anything you can write off as professional enrichment, like staying at luxury resorts for seminars.

SpaceMaster01

he mentions the sacrifices people have to make to get a good life? why do people all around the world have to go through that kind of shit. I mean when ultra intelligent people get billions of money why dont they distribute it to all people. Why is their goal to go one level up in the forbes list and not end poverty around the world? Greedy morons. Dont listen any word of greedy people. They say be first selfish to help other people. What a bullshit.

I've done all of those things and one major hospital trip would send my wife and I into bankruptcy even though I make many times the national average. The US is a failed state and shit stains like this guy are the ones telling you to chase the "dream" so they can keep living the good life while you break yourself against a no win system. If his business failed, he'd get a bailout. If you fail, you'll get homelessness or worse.

I haven't gone on vacation in more than three years... shocker I'm still in the same place i started. All i do is work and it hasn't gotten me shit besides barely maintaining a shit existence.


But_like_whytho

No one works 100hrs a week. It’s physically impossible. You may be present 100hrs a week, but your quality of work is shoddy at best. Anyone who “flexes” with a “I work 60/80/100hrs a week” should be met with a “why aren’t you capable of getting your work done in a timely fashion?” Showing up, sitting at a desk and looking busy isn’t working.


RobotWelder

These types of hours are MANDATORY in commercial/industrial construction.


But_like_whytho

Even more dumb, how many people have made lethal mistakes because they work more hours than is reasonable?


RobotWelder

Well we did have multiple deaths on the last job site (Amazon -SOL) I was on. But they did “give” us the weekend off because of those deaths.


But_like_whytho

Profits over lives every single time.


Jader14

Very, *very* many. Too many. But oh no, counting deaths doesn't count against capitalism. No sir.


AzureBuzzSaw

I worked on a fishing boat in Alaska for one trip. 18 hrs a day, 7 days a week.

pillbinge

I also guarantee he hasn't done a lot of that, or needed to. No one works 100 hours a week. What people call work after a certain amount is just lingering.


AndrewKemendo

This guy sucks balls, but I'm curious what this crowd would propose in the situation: You're 23 and want a $1M+ net worth by 40. You went to a community college then finished a bachelors at a state university. You work at an entry level job making 40k/yr. How would you achieve that goal without working like this guy suggests? I'm not agreeing that it's the right goal to have or that working that much alone will get you there - obviously it won't. I would argue that anyone who didn't start on third base had to put this kind of effort in to get into the 1% or whatever.

I have a client / friend that is going on a 6 week vacation with his family. The reason is because he works 80 hour weeks, hasn't taken a real vacation in about 4 years, and rarely shows up for his 2 daughter's major life / school / sports events. He jokes about it but basically if he didn't take this time away for his family his wife was going to divorce him. I'm more than fine sticking to 40 hour weeks and using all of my 30 days of vacation I get per year.


dingogringo23

Dudes also full of sh*t. Claims to have killed a bear with his bare hands.


YouCouldBeBetter

Nothing but gaslighting the poor into thinking their predicament is all their fault and not the result of every functional and free society requiring losers and winners. It's one thing to be okay with being in a society that condemns those who genetically/economically lack the ability to ever really thrive. it's another to ignore psychology and economics to maintain a delusion of a meritocracy so you can gaslight the condemned into thinking it's all their fault and if they just worked hard for your shit minimum wage company they can make it. They can't. It's mathematically impossible while a and a society needs such a working class to exist, that doesn't mean you need to lie to them, exploit them, pay them terribly or mistreat them. All of this is about being religiously superficial. It doesn't mean anything other than achieving an overabundance of resources at the expense of human connection.


Emmanuel_Badboy

My father did this, sacrificed so much to work and become successful. He achieved it and is now worth millions and will never want for anything money can buy. His family (including me) hate his guts and he walks through life knowing the people around him are only there because of his money. I consider his life, completely void of love, a complete failure.


LIKELYtoRAPhorrible

Wonder how much money he will take with him when he dies?


folstar

He left off the part where he relentlessly cons people and is only worth of small fraction of his claimed wealth. What a shitbag.


SoftwareSloth

This rhetoric is hilarious to me. I’ve seen how these people work. They believe they’re grinding out hundreds of hours, but it’s all spent in luxury and fun. They hire executive assistants to do their actual jobs, tell their direct reports to filter all correspondence through the executive assistant, and then they just fuck off. They make a few slide decks, do some presentation, and the rest of the time is spent rubbing elbows on private flights and vacation hotspots. They miss Christmas because they’re so incredibly selfish that their family hardly matters, they don’t take vacation because every day is basically vacation, and they skip anniversaries because they view their spouse as a waste of their time. Working harder has diminishing returns and almost no gain when you’re salary. The simple fact is that corporations don’t take care of people. You could start a business, but prepare for some strong arm buyouts from the ultra wealthy if it’s any good. They consume everything. And now they’re even consuming the housing market. Next thing you know they’ll tell you it’s your fault that you couldn’t make a cash offer on your first house because you don’t know how to manage money. Meanwhile they hike the price of rent making it even harder to save money or achieve life goals. This glorification of the rich needs to stop. They don’t have anyone’s best interest in mind except their own. And it’s pathetic that the people I see repeat this the most are the people who have been burned by them repeatedly. They couldn’t find work in the 90’s, they lost their house in 2008, they feel underpaid for their skilled blue collar work, they’ve lost their inherited assets, the 401k is a failed experiment. What’s it going to take to realize that these things are *done* to people? They keep trying to pull themselves up by their bootstraps, but they don’t realize they don’t even have boots anymore.

Yep. And he seems like a well-balanced happy man for his efforts. Dude looks mentally ill in those photos.


Sunshineal

I don't like him. This guy makes it seem as if its so easy to start a business then bam you're making money. without mentioning it takes years and money to start a business to break even then make a profit. He acts as if we're lazy. Don't blame people who aren't that interested in starting a business. It's hard to go having a job which is reliable and predictable. You know when you're going to get paid and you know how much money you're going to make. Its hard to throw that all away on a business which costs money to start and maintain. The business may not make money for a while vs a paycheck you know will be there. Bills need to be paid and thats what most important.

Putting everything else aside, in terms of his clear luck and privilege, if you have to turn your back on EVERYTHING in life that truly matters to increase the number in your bank account, that was already just fine at the start....then you aren't even human any more.

100 hours multiplied by $7.50 is $750 a week, multiplied by 52 weeks is $39,000 a year, multiplied by 3 years is $117,000 after 3 years if you have saved every single cent of that and without counting inflation. There is no way you can get rich with that.

This is on LinkedIn? Smh… I thought this POS belonged to those shitty grind and hustle Instagram pages but on LinkedIn? This is a new low for LinkedIn, and it’s saying something.

I have not been in a holiday in 11 years, and work on holidays and do at least 70 hours a week, I worked on my birthday and wedding anniversary (before I got divorced) This guy can go fuck himself


TheSimulacra

This guy's first job was a wall street financial analyst, the fuck does he know about hard work and struggle?


thatonedude1604

This dude is delusional if he thinks people have the energy to work 100 hours a week, which would be roughly 14 hours in one day. Might as well call yourself a walking skeleton at that point.

I haven’t been on a vacation since 2014…. Don’t ever get sick in the US.

Eat the rich!


TossMeAwayToTheMount

how come there were no slave billionaires if they worked over 100 hour weeks?


jwrose

Started his career as a Wall Street financial analyst in the 70’s. Yeah, if only I worked hard enough I could have been born decades earlier and done the same. Oh, and luck doesn’t exist, apparently. What a stupid motherfucker.

Dan Pena is such a piece of shit. Bezos is the face of capitalism, Pena is the fist.

Horrible person

Meritocracy is original sin for capitalists - you're broke because you suck and you suck because you're broke. Your shitty life is all your fault because of your choices, nevermind the material limitations capital enforces on the quality of those choices. Can't work full time and side-hustle? You're lazy. Bad/no credit so you rent instead of buy? You're financially illiterate. No headspace left to focus at the end of a workweek? You lack ambition. No money for school or jobs for what you want to do? You're a dumb-dumb. It's always your fault and never the system's. Recognize that it's brain poison meant to sustain the status quo, propaganda to manufacture consent and divide classes along racial and financial lines. Don't internalize a narrative spoon fed to you by fucks like this piece of shit.

Mr. Feeny can't tell me shit.

You cant take money with you when you die, but your children will remember you never being around when you do.

Man LinkedIn is full of cringe shit like this

Ok boomer.

I'd rather be poor and spend time with family. What's even the point of being rich if all your time is spent at work? When do you get to spend that money? What are you going to spend it on?


FuckYouParty2024

Yeah this is the living example of “Money can’t buy happiness” Because this dude is clearly angry


HistoryBuff45

This admiration of slave like conditions from many people demonstrate how powerful the ideological apparatus of American capitalist society is and how the workers must raise their consciousness and realize that there is an alternative to capitalism.


enbymoviescript
